About Cherish

I have been living in Battle Ground for over 30 years. I’m married, a homeowner, and my nieces say I’m the, “world’s greatest aunt.” My wonderful parents raised me with a passion to serve and the strong moral and ethical values that I have today. 

In my free time I’ve volunteered 1000s of hours serving community members experiencing homeless through my nonprofit Food with Friends (The Shower Outreach Project). When I’m not serving, I enjoy playing soccer, sewing, photography, bird watching and gardening.

Cherish DesRochers





Community Service

Recently appointed to represent the City of Battle Ground on the Joint Executive Group on Homelessness

"I enthusiastically endorse Cherish Desrocher-Vafeados for Battle Ground City Council. I met Cherish in our work on the Battle Ground Education Foundation. Cherish cares deeply about our community and does the work to prove it. As an incumbent Council Member she has worked diligently on behalf of the city of Battle Ground, and has earned another term. I encourage people to get to know Cherish, and to vote for her in the upcoming election."
